Consuming O16N Web Services from Azure Functions

Operationalization feature of Microsoft Machine Learning Server allows us to publish R/Python models and code in the form of web services and the consume these services within client applications. This article outlines step-by-step details of consuming the published web service (R language) using Azure Functions (C# TimerTrigger). Azure Functions is a solution for easily running…

Using Microsoft R Server Operationalization on HDInsight

R Server on HDInsight cluster allows R scripts to use Spark and MapReduce to run distributed computations. You can develop a model and operationalize the model to make predictions by configuring Edge Node as One-Box. We have One-Click Deploy ARM Templates using which you can create R Server on HDInsight Cluster with EdgeNode configured as…


Using R to generate API Client from Swagger

Microsoft R Server’s operationalization feature enables data scientists to deploy and consume web services to operationalize their R analytics. The publishService() function in mrsdeploy package can be used to publish an R code block as a new web service. After it has been deployed, the web service can be: Consumed directly in R by another…


Pre-trained AlexNet model for MicrosoftML’s rxNeuralNet

The rxNeuralNet model in MicrosoftML package supports custom neural networks defined using the NET# language. We can use the NET# language to define a convolutional neural network. In this blog we will give a NET# definition string for the AlexNet model. The model is a direct conversion of the Caffe implementation. It’s worth noting that an R implementation of AlexNet is barely available at the time this…


11 ways to deploy R Server on HDInsight Cluster

In this article, we will discuss 11 possible ways to deploy R Server on HDInsight Cluster. Some of these ways will help in automating the cluster creation (using scripts). Majority of them are related to deployment using Azure Resource Manager Templates. ARM Templates are very useful and can be deployed in several ways. Here are the…


Data Exploration in XDF Files using ScaleR Functions

In this article, let us see few examples to explore data in XDF Files using ScaleR functions. For all the following examples, we will be using input XDF file AirlineDemoSmall.xdf from the SampleData Directory in Microsoft R Server. 1. Obtain the different types of variables present in the dataset OUTPUT :       2….
